I’ve been doing some thinking about Michael Smith’s argument against externalism about motivation. To remind you, externalists about motivation – henceforth, externalists – deny that there is any conceptual or internal connection between making a moral judgment and being motivated (to some extent) to act on it. Internalists about motivation – henceforth, internalists – assert that there is such an internal connection between judgment and motivation.
